Tessa Duvall

Two finalists for the open position of Executive Director of Health Services will be on campus for a series of open forums beginning Tuesday.

The first forum will run from 10-11 a.m. in the Mass Media and Technology Hall Auditorium. The candidate is Tom Jevas, a Fellow of the American College of Heathcare Executives who has more than 25 years of experience in healthcare management.

Jevas was most recently employed as an administrator of diagnostic services with Central Ohio Primary Care Physicians Inc., based in Columbus, Ohio, from 1999 to December 2010, according to his curriculum vitae.

Javes earned his Masters of Hospital and Health Administration from Xavier University in Cincinnati in 1984, and since then has held senior-level management positions such as vice president and chief operating officer for Physician Services Corporation in Detroit, and executive director of Family Health Alliance Inc., in Columbus, Ohio.

The second forum will take place with Vicky Rosa from 10 to 11 a.m. on Wednesday at the MMTH Auditorium.

Rosa, a registered nurse with a Master’s degree in Health Administration from College of St. Francis, has more than 12 years experience in higher education.

Currently, Rosa is the director of Butler University’s Health Services in Indianapolis, a job she began in Oct. 1998.

According to her curriculum vitae, Rosa also worked as a practice administrator for the Methodist Medical Group from 1983 to 1998, and the assistant head nurse at the Methodist Hospital Emergency Trauma Center in Indianapolis from 1980 to 1983.

The Executive Director of Health Services position became available in January of this year when former director Libby Greaney left WKU after more than 16 years. Greaney took the job of executive director of the Health and Recreation Services department at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho.

At the January Board of Regents meeting, Ann Mead, vice president for Finance and Administration, said WKU would conduct a nation-wide search to fill the position, which she hoped to have filled by April.

At the meeting, Mead said WKU hopes to advance Health Services further than Greaney already has by managing growth and adjusting staff size to patient volume.
